Reflection EnterView, a nearly 100 percent Java application, administers host-access
applications centrally and avoids hands-on administration at each desktop system, said
Scott Merrick, a market manager for WRQ Inc. of Seattle.
In supply-chain management, providing access to host applications for users both
inside and outside [government] is becoming key, Merrick said. Administrators need
no specialized knowledge of Java or the Hypertext Markup Language to use the Web-to-host
application, he said.
Reflection EnterView works with servers running Unix and Microsoft Windows NT, and with
IBM 3270 and 3270E and Digital Equipment Corp. VT hosts.
Clients can be PCs, Apple Macintoshes and Unix platforms.
EnterView next year will support 5250 and Hewlett-Packard Co. host emulation, Merrick
Terminal emulation, once a tactical way of consolidating desktop terminals and PCs into
one box, will acquire greater strategic value for government and commercial organizations,
WRQ bundles no security software with Reflection EnterView. It has an open architecture
into which sites can bring whatever security products they prefer, Merrick said.
Reflection EnterView licenses for $135 per user.
